Pedro Calado also insists on the trips for flights to be 86.00 euros. The vice-president of the Regional Government returned to fix this goal this afternoon. He wants to see the for residents paying this price of the subsidised rate and not the full rate and says he will beat Lisbon and make this happen
The reduced price for residents for the Ferry will be between 25-30 euros each way as foot passengers, but hopefully there will also be set prices to take a car or other vehicle. The ferry service should be running before the summer of 2018.
